The "musical renaissance" movement is placing ever increasing 
treasures of olden time music before us in the form of "Denkmaler" 
and similar, more or less, monumental publications, edited by com- 
petent musical scholars. Thus the old masters of music are again 
accessible to libraries which could not and can not acquire them in 
the very costly and scarce original editions, and this remark applies 
for obvious reasons to practically all American libraries. 

While therefore the evolution of modern music may be fairly well 
reconstructed through the medium of these modern editions of old 
music, it is entirely different with the old books on music in which 
there lies stored such a great wealth of historical suggestion and fact. 
They are not accessible in reprint, if we except certain works by 
standard authors — I mention at random Altenburg, Agricola, St. 
Augustine, Bach, Blankenburgh, Boethius, Diruta, Glarean, Haw- 
kins, Mattheson, Parfaict, Praetorius, Quantz, Ramos de Pareja, 
Schlick, Virdung, Zacconi. Confronted by this fact, the Library of 
Congress, immediately after the reorganization of the Music Division 
in 1902, undertook systematically to collect the old books on music 
in the original (because practically, only available) editions. In the 
short space of ten years it was, of course, impossible to acquire every 
rare book of moment and in some instances this was due less to 
rarity than to prohibitive cost. Fortunately, a few such books 
are available either in modern reprints at the Library of Con- 
gress, or they found their way years ago, when prices were less 
exasperating, to other American libraries, principally the Boston 
Public, the New York Public and the Newberry Library of Chicago. 
It would be unsafe to assume that an old book on music is not to be 
found in America because it happens to be wanting here in the largest 
American collection of the kind. 

Possibly, if fortune favors us, certain annoying gaps in our own 
collections, annoying because of the otherwise comprehensive character 
of the collections, will gradually disappear. But, whether or not 
fortune will so favor us, it was felt that the publication of a catalogue 
of the old books on music already in the Library of Congress — prob- 
ably more than a third of the entire output before 1800 — had become 
advisable in the interest of musicology at home and abroad. One 
point, however, should not be overlooked. It has not been the 
policy of the Library of Congress to collect every or even many edi- 



tions of a rare book, much less every known translation. The mat- 
ter embodied in the edition usually decided our choice of edition. 
Nor did first editions without distinguishing matter tempt us, merely 
because they were first editions. Such a complete representation of 
the typographical history of a book may be and is a legitimate desid- 
eratum in special collections, but is not necessarily an essential in a 
general collection as planned by the Library of Congress. 

This catalogue is practically the work of Miss Julia Gregory of the 
Catalogue Division, and, with revisions and certain modifications, 
represents the catalogue cards prepared since 1902. The adoption of 
the Anglo-American code of rules some years later will account for 
occasional slight variations in form between earlier and later entries. 
Suggestions that would naturally be offered from time to time by the 
chief of the Music Division, in whose custody the books are kept, 
have not materially affected the character of Miss Gregory's work. 
He assumes, however, the full responsibility for the form of this 
book, and for a few minor deviations from the code of ' 'Catalogue 
rules, compiled by Committees of the American Library Association 
and the (British) Library Association/' published 1908 with the 
modifications in force in the Catalogue Division of the Library of 
Congress. In case of doubt as to the meaning of a collation, etc., the 
user of the Catalogue is referred to that publication. 

To avoid misunderstanding, it may be stated that the entries have 
as a rule been restricted to books dealing exclusively or in an essential 
degree with music. Many of the latter are not shelved in the Music 
Division, but elsewhere, and this accounts for classification symbols 
other than M, ML and MT to be found in this catalogue. Books dealing 
only incidentally with music, such as Forkel, for instance, enumerates, 
have been excluded for practical reasons, though their incidental 
musical matter may possess a greater scientific value than treatises 
devoted exclusively to music. Finally, a subject index has been 
dispensed with after mature reflection, principally because the old 
books do not lend themselves satisfactorily to modern subject head- 
ings, and because a really useful subject index would have involved 
analytical labor of such magnitude as to be clearly out of proportion 
to its usefulness for the musicological expert, the person for whom 
alone it could possess a practical value. At the end of the volume 
will be found an " Index to anonymous works, including references 
to special contents" as compiled by me, and entries for books received 
too late for insertion in the main alphabet.

The lawfulness, excellency and advantage of instrumental music. 
A 2d ed. (with necessary improvements, which now render the 
sense entirely plain) of the Lawfulness, excellency and advantage 
of instrumental music in the public worship of God, but chiefly of 
organs. Philadelphia, A. Steuart, 1763. 

16 p. 18°. 

Title taken from the old L. of C. printed catalogue. The pamphlet itself is mis- 
placed and could not be found for recataloguing. 

Apparently this is not a bona fide second edition of the pamphlet "The law- 
fulness and advantage of instrumental musick in the public worship of God . . . 
By a Presbyterian" (Philadelphia, W. Dunlap, 1763. 38 p.) -but a satirical 
reply. Compare Sonneck's " Francis Hopkinson and James Lyon," 1905, p.

Musick's monument; or, A remembrancer of the best practical 
musick, both divine, and civil, that has ever been known, to have been 
in the world. Divided into three parts. The first part, shews a 
necessity of singing psalms well, in parochial churches, or not to sing 
at all; directing, how they may be well sung, certainly; by two sev- 
eral ways, or means; with an assurance of a perpetual national-quire; 
and also shewing, how cathedral musick, may be much improved, and 
refined. The second part, treats of the noble lute . . . directing the 
most ample way, for the use of the theorboe . . . Shewing a general 
way of procuring invention, and playing voluntarily, upon the lute, 
viol, or any other instrument; with two pritty devices; the one, 
shewing how to translate lessons, from one tuning, or instrument, to 
another; the other, an indubitable way, to know the best tuning, 
upon any instrument : both done by example. In the third part, the 
generous viol ... is treated upon; with some curious observations, 
never before handled, concerning it, and musick in general. By Tho. 
Mace . . . London, Printed by T. Radcliffe, and N. Thompson, for 
the author, 1676.

A reissue, with Andrews engr. t.-p. added, of Vogler's: 

Kuhrpfalzische tonschule. Auf kosten des verfassers. Mannheim, In 
commission bei herrn C. F. Schwan, und bei herrn M. Gotze [1778] 

2 v. in 1 (v. 1: viii, 96 p. ; v. 2: 4 p. 1., 206 p.) fold, tab., fold, diagr. 17£ cm . 

Contents. — 1. th. Tonkunst. Clavierschule. Stimmbildungskunst. 
Singschule. Begleitungskunst. — 2. th. Tonwissenschaft. Tonsezkunst. 
Nuzbarkeit des tonmases. Gebrauch der harmonic Tonlehre. 

From this it appears that the "Nuzbarkeit des tonmases" does not consti- 
tute a third part to the work, as is stated in Barclay Squire's " Catalogue of 
printed music (1487-1800) in the British museum." 

The "Zweiter theil" is apparently a reissue with the original t.-p. of 
"Georg Joseph Vogler's . . . Tonwissenschaft und tonsezkunst," Mannheim, 

The "beyspiele" refer to the "Griinde der Kuhrpfalzischen tonschule in 
beispielen" following.
